Beam’s rewards program, Beam Perks, is a voluntary program that promotes preventative dental care by awarding members points that can be redeemed to dental supplies.
Beam Dental, the digital-first dental insurer that incorporates dental hygiene behavior into policy pricing, recently announced the expansion of its Beam Perks rewards program and the introduction of a digital quoting tool. Beam Perks leverages a connected toothbrush to incentivize preventive dental care for members, and the digital quoting tool is designed to empower brokers to receive quotes and complete the underwriting process in under 30 seconds, according to the company.
As a dental benefits provider using artificial intelligence to track how members take care of their teeth, Beam says it has eliminated manual underwriting and automated the dental insurance value chain, from quotes to claims, for brokers, employers and members.
The Beam’s rewards program is a voluntary program that promotes preventative dental care by awarding points to members and their dependents for brushing their teeth for 2 minutes, twice per day. Members accumulate points using their Beam Brush, a smart electric toothbrush that tracks brushing behavior. Points can be redeemed for dental supplies, including brush heads, floss, and specially formulated Beam Paste.
According to the company, Beam’s automated quoting tool is designed to enable brokers to input employer information, receive quotes, and complete the underwriting process in under 30 seconds, all without speaking to a sales representative. According to Beam, brokers already using the tool through Beam’s pilot program have quadrupled the number of quotes they receive on a daily basis.
The company further reports that it saw record growth in 2020, including doubling both revenue and number of members while expanding nationwide to over 40 states and 400,000 access points.
“As the modern workplace continues to take shape in 2021, employers will strive to offer comprehensive benefits packages that appeal to employees everywhere—whether their teams work in a traditional office space or remotely across the country,” said Alex Frommeyer, chief executive officer and co-founder of Beam. “Beam gives employers an opportunity to invest in the overall health of their workforce by helping them take a proactive approach to dental hygiene.”
